You didn't really look hard, did you? haha

Here is one (welded plate): Build Thread (FE3, RX7 TII, EFR 6258, MS3)

Another one (bolted plate): build thread (TII drivetrain swap, built motor, cage, widebody, blah blah)

For best results your will need a mill for the plate and lathe for the dowels.

No worries. Good luck!

Cage is mostly done. Cutting the rear out to tube the bottom and get the link locations done. Since only the bumper and the shocks will me mounted in the back, it will be pretty minimal frame!

Adding some bars to the front from the cage to the strut towers. No need for strut tower bars after this!

I think it may have been you emailing me before, but did you ever find a turbo manifold?

Yes it was! Well I think I might end up building my own at this rate. I have all the parts, so might as well. It is an easy one since I have all the room in the world and the downpipe is crossing over the transmission to the other side. Unless you are thinking about doing it!

Found a 8.8" rear-end out of a 2003 crown vic police interceptor with only 15k on the car. It needs to be shortened but it will work great!

Yes, when you think about it it's going to be amazing. 450-500WHP, 13" brakes, 12" slicks, all in a 1900lbs car. The limitations will be the driver!

Well custom axles are easy to get. I might actually switch all 4 wheels to wide 5 hubs at this rate. I am 90% decided on it. I will have to look and see.

It will be fun! I am sure there will be stuff to play around and fix in the process of running that much power like other guys that run on track with turbos on here have found. It is all fun!
